Continuing the S-Curve tradition, the Upper Wall has mostly sport routes in the 5.10 - 5.11 range. This wall is smaller and more broken than the lower wall. A few routes require a walk-off to the west, but most can be lowered with a single rope.
From the digital sign at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, drive 4.25 miles up canyon until the very obvious S-Curve in the road. There is a small parking lot and also room to park along the side of the road. Follow the Mill B North Fork trail on the north side of the road to the third switchback as for the Lower Wall. Branch off to the east and follow the length of the Lower Wall to the east. Find a trail that rounds the east end of the Lower Wall and head up a gully to the north to read the Upper Wall.

Urban Sprawl 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a PG13 UT : Wasatch Range : ... : S-Curve - Upper Wall
Very steep and juggy, with two roofs to pull at the top. On lead, failing to clip the bolts atop the roofs could prang you into the jagged rocks below. The route actually moves left of the final roof, then right to the anchors. This route shares anchors with Clean Underwear (5.9) immediately to its east. So you could lead Clean Underwear first if you'd prefer to toprope, but be advised: the toprope will tend to yank you right, off route....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
